the heart

Art does not come from ideas. Art does not come from the mind. Art comes from the place where you dream. Art comes from your unconscious; it comes from the white hot center of you...

We look at the landscape and what we see out there is our deepest emotional inner selves. This is at the heart of a work of art.

-- Robert Olen Butler, from "Boot Camp" Five Points 9:1
